3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, brewpub. Pours a pale reddish copper body with minimal to no head. The nose is slightly sweet caramel malt, a little grainy, some minimal hops. The flavor is very tame, grainy and husky with caramel and Vienna malt sweetness. Just a light touch of bitterness on the finish. Light bodied, a little stickiness on the finish. An OK Amber, it could use a bit more hops and less graininess.
